With ongoing issues all over the world, are there certain countries and/or ports that you have begun crossing off your list for now?
Do Worldwide Politics Impact your Travel?
Yes, those that have travel alerts on them by our government.
We had to cancel a cruise. We booked a 7-day Mediterranean cruise with an overnight in Istanbul. Two days after booking, Istanbul was removed. So we canceled that particular cruise.
Bottom line we did not cancel due to politics, but the cruise line canceled for political/safety reasons. It's OK. Someday we will be there (Hopefully).
I had looked at a cruise that hit middle eastern ports, then I read an article of bomb fragments hitting the deck of a cruise ship ported there, I decided to go on a different cruise.
It is a shame, I had wanted to see more of Turkey, guess I'll have to hold off until till things settle down to visit that part of the world.
Yes, they affect me and friends... a couple of them were in Turkey during the museum issue.
They had to cancel a couple of cruise since.
